  1. While I'm here, may as well update this post.


    Fedora 13 x86_64, not much has changed, just evolved I think. Theme is edited, I've changed to AWN from Gnome-Do. I still use Compiz but have disabled wobbly windows and a few other things, I still use a number of animated effects though. I have an ASUS Xonar DS, because of this I required Kernel 2.6.34 which is not yet released for Fedora 13, as you will see its working well.


    Desktop: Gnome, running an updated version of the conky script from above. AWN, and an updated theme.




    Google Chrome: I've dropped Firefox, I was never happy with Firefox in Linux. Its a great browser in Windows but always seems sluggish when using the Linux versions. Yes, I'm also using Windows 7. (New job, I'm required to use it now and again..)




    Widget Factory: Just really to show how my theme has changed since Fedora 11. I really do enjoy this, it has custom edits to suite my tastes, like the menu bar didn't work on transparent, little things like that.





  2. Hello guys, how are you all doing ?


    Anyway, I upgraded to Fedora 13 from 12 but instead of using yum I actually made use of a Fedora tool called preupgrade. It is very easy to use,


    # yum update
    # yum install preupgrade python-urlgrabber
    # preupgrade


    You will get a gui (cli version available), it downloads the required files, asks you to reboot, then you install from anaconda. Maybe worth a try.





  3. nice shots, now where's your Fedora 11 screenies :)


    I was on a mission to only add screen shots for even number Fedora releases! For you I'll make an exception Anyweb :P

    Truth be told, real life has had me busy and just as its settling back down, I'm coming down with a cold :(


    Desktop with Gnome-Do showing:




    Desktop, Widget Factory, Nautilus and System Monitor:

  4. interesting that you say this, however we still havnt managed to get a common (and old) game, Counter Strike Source to work in Fedora 11 on my sons PC, I followed what info I could find online (installed wine via yum) but it never starts the game, steam installed fine... but that was about it


    i'm contemplating taking the ati video card out and using the onboard intel as a test, but do you have any ideas about it ? otherwise the Vista dual boot will remain for a long time on that pc


    I once had the counterstrike source games running under wine / cedega. I think I may have posted a screenshot here. Been a while since i did it but if I remember correctly you have to start the game from cli and look for any missing .dll's, google the dll name and you should get a download link. Copy it to your ~.wine/c/windows/system or system32 dir and it should get you further, I think it may have been missing fonts too...




    ^ maybe that link will help. If not, just ask me if you get any errors.

  5. I just noticed a post about this over at Fedora forums. Seems to be an issue but I'm not sure why. Everything is working for me.


    Can you tell me what the following command shows;


    # yum repolist


    Mine looks like this:


    yum repolist
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    repo id                                      repo name                                                       status

    Also, try to force a yum update with the following commands;


    # yum clean all




    # yum --nogpgcheck update


    I'm saying force the update because I don't remember having to do any fixes to get things working here but do remember having to force an update.

  6. Your missing the public keys, it should sort that for you but I think it could be an issue with Fedora 11 being stuck in limbo between Rawhide and official 11 release. Try,


    su -c "rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*"


    Then try install the dock with the command.


    su -c "yum install cairo-dock"<!--c2--></div><!--ec2-->


    @ Anyweb, wow your 10 year old kid getting on with Fedora. I'm impressed.

  7. Its in the RPM Fusion repo.


    Install RPM Fusion,

    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'


    Then install cairo-dock

    su -c "yum install cairo-dock"

  8. I actually just used the standard Fedora Live x86_64 Gnome Preview image, I had wanted to try F11-Preview-x86_64-Live-Games but the blank screen issue forced me to grab a standard image to make sure it was a problem with Fedora 11's new nouveau driver.


    The dock is Gnome-do and its Docky theme. Now part of fedora 11, just a simple 'yum install gnome-do' away. Select the docky theme from gnome-do settings. (Requires Compiz)


    I will be giving the F11-Preview-x86_64-Live-XFCE image a spin on the kids Acer Aspire one, she is a big fan of Fedora 10. I will probably wait for a final version first though, been a lot of updates over the last week.

  9. Posting this from it now Anyweb.


    Had the blank screen issue as I own an Nvidia card, passing 'nouveau.modeset=1' to the kernel fixed it all for me. PulseAudio defaulted my creative sound blaster to digital, took me a while to find the correct volume control to change it. Now its perfect, running very well, I can honestly say its far more responsive than Fedora 10 was. Installed to my Hard drive and now my main OS.



  10. I just saw it was a Fedora 8 screenshot I last posted. Seems like such a long time ago. I thought I'd add my current Fedora 10 Desktop.

    I tend to stick with OS X style themes these days, simply because they are easy to match up in all areas of Linux. (Gnome, KDE theme, QT, Firefox, Opera etc..) I'm running Gnome-Do with the Docky theme (Gnome-Do 0.80) and its by far the best dock application I've used on Linux so far.

  11. If you try a "yum update", see if it detects the 64-bit chip and offers to download a new/different kernel.


    I did something similar a bit ago - installed Fedora7 from DVD then "yum update" offered to update the kernel to the SMP one (was a dual-core machine).


    SMP is just a new kernel, to change to x86_64 is a major upgrade that 99% of the time will fail (You have to hack the repo files to even get it to try). You will need to download the x86_64 cd /DVD and do a re-install.

  12. Is a better and more up to date package made by a fedora forum user. It also comes with the plug-ins. Make sure you remove the fedora compiz-fusion first.


    Fedora Forums


    Rotating cube via mouse wheel will be a setting in compiz-manager. I think the settings program is called 'ccsm'. The above guide includes the compiz-fusion icon for easy access.

  13. I got my daughter an Acer Aspire One for Xmas. I put Fedora 10 on it. Never had a single problem with the sound. It worked out of the box. My only issue is the front speakers keep working when the headphones are plugged in, quite annoying when she watches high school musical over, and over and over and over.....


    Anyway, I used the Gnome Live CD image. I would suspect its more a pulse audio / KDE issue than a sound driver one. Are you fully updated?

  14. when i run the make command i got this message:


    /usr/local/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0: undefined reference to `g_set_error_literal'

    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    make[3]: *** [avant-window-navigator] Error 1

    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/asu/Download/avant-window-navigator-0.2.6'

    make: *** [all] Error 2


    whhat should i do?


    Why not just use the fedora RPM package?


    yum install avant-window-navigator

  15. I have a 32-bit game that I run (circle-mud). I want to upgrade to 64-bit distro but in the past when I have I haven't been able to compile and run the game. What changes would I need to make in order to do this? Here is the first part of my Makefile file:


    # C compiler to use

    CC = gcc


    # Path to cxref utility

    CXREF = cxref


    # Any special flags you want to pass to the compiler

    MYFLAGS = -Wall


    #flags for profiling (see hacker.doc for more information)





    # Do Not Modify Anything Below This Line (unless you know what you're doing) #



    BINDIR = ../bin




    LIBS = -lcrypt -lgd



    I have a 64-bit AMD and 4GB of RAM (only 3.2 shows with 3-bit distro). Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need any other info.


    You can compile 32 Bit applications on 64bit Linux, you just have to install the 32bit Libs. You may run into issues with some libs, but its pretty rare.

  16. I could well be wrong here, as I have little experience with Qt development, but as far as I'm aware I don't think this is possible.


    Again, if I'm correct, Qt Designer works a little differently in that it deals only with the user interface and doesn't have integration with the code underneath.


    Anyone with more details feel free to correct me. I'd love to be wrong!


    thanks hybrid I wasn't aware of that


    I did some searching and I found this:

    "Trolltech strongly modified Designer in its new release Qt4. Designer no longer includes a C++ editor and a project management."


    I saw a tutorial and it was an older version of qt designer, thats why i thought it was possible


    You can use QDevelop which will let you manage a C++ project and launch Q Designer when needed.
